the population of the united states of america seems to be something that every politician has known here literally for hundreds of years. and to have a guy go in front of an audience and say you know what? 47%, forget about them. >> who cares about them, screw them. what george w. bush did there is presidential. what barack obama did on election night when he acknowledged the fact about half the country didn't vote for him, that he was going to try everything in his power as president of the united states to win them over, to ensure that he would be able to govern the country, you know, as one. and here you have the republican presidential nominee who very -- unnervingly comfortable talking about the 47% in such an undignified sarcastic -- not sarcastic -- condescending way. just writing them off completely. he didn't have the decency to say i'm not talking about all 47%, but maybe some of them. he didn't do that. but what he said in that one clip was unpresidential and how he can think he win over enough people to become president of the united states is beyond me. >> i want to play ano
, and that's, of course, a key swing state, believe that barack obama was not born in the united states. so this jocular, sarcastic reference to it recently by governor romney is not a joke. that this is something you can keep igniting and keep stirring up. aren't you astounded that a huge percentage of actual voters in the republican party in ohio, a reasonable state, believe the guy wasn't born in this country? >> sure. and same percentage -- same type of percentage believe he's still a muslimeen though it's clear that he never was and never has been. look, there are still warring flags out there and to my flends and colleagues in pennsylvania, don't take anything for granted. the voter i.d. law if it stands is going to hurt us. there's no question about that, chris. i still believe the debates are going to be a factor and governor romney can recover in the debates. lastly, don't believe for a minute that they're not going to spend any money in pennsylvania. the super pac will come in the last six or seven weeks and try to swamp the state with ads. swamp the state. >> i agree. all those p
for the united states government to condemn attacks on americans and to defend our values. i think it's a terrible course for america to stand in apology for our values, instead when our grounds are being attacked and being breached that the first response of the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> there's no space between this kind of talk and what we heard from sarah palin in the campaign four years ago. catch her act. >> we see an america of exceptionalism. yes. usa. usa! our opponent is someone who sees america as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists that targeted their own country. >> this gets back to you, ron. i want you to take off here. we will get back to cynthia, but seems to me you found something interesting. instead of leading, he is shrinking down to something smaller than the campaign was. i can be crazy, i can talk like sarah palin, because that seems to be the language it takes to win a republican constituency. it is sad to watch somebody get smaller as the campaign goes on, reaching down to the people who think
shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >> and the president's on the case, he sent two u.s. warships to the libyan coast. he sent marines into tripoli, and attorney general eric holder said that he has opened up an investigation. >> as we watch the world today, it seems that we're at the mercy of events and -- a strong america depends on a strong military. this president has done something i find very hard to understand. >> joe kleine, thank you because you've got a big picture and look at this, who is romney talking about our ability to confront these local situations where a group of militants in a place like benghazi decide to go after the american embassy. >> what is being able to fight two big land wars have to do with that? >> once again the guy doesn't know what he's talking about or he's 25 years out of date. the two-war strategy was a product of the cold war when we had to have the ability to fight the russians on the planes of the earth and. >> he still thinks that the soviet union exists and is the greatest threat we have out there. it's really remarkable that
attacked and being breached, that the first response to the united states must be outrage at the breach of the sovereignty of our nation. >> you know, it's hard to be -- even attempt to get it straight about that. that was the most ternl statement i've heard in a long time. he's accusing the president of something he never did. he never sympathized with the mobs. he never sympathized with someone taking the lives of americans or serving america. regular career service people over in cairo without any checking with any washington, put out a statement, just cool it over there so they should show they're not part of this, you know, absolutely outrageous disrespect. >> i think -- i don't know, mark -- what mark thinks but that was a little painful, infuriating, both painful and infuriating to watch. i'm going to give mitt romney enough credit for knowing the president in this context didn't apologize for anything. you know, did none of the things he -- >> never sympathized. >> he never sympathized or apologized. mitt romney is purr you suing a political strategy that is so nakedly and obvio
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
of this debate. ultimately the fault line in the united states is not the fault line between the people receiving federal assistance and those who aren't. what we want to do is get people off those things. that status ought to be transitional. and they ought to ultimately move to the point where they are, if you will, taxpayers or they working full time and so forth. that ought to be the debate, and that's what's missing. again, what's missing i actually think from this campaign is not just optimism, but it's a set of ideas on the economy, on the budget, on our role in the world. you can't -- neither candidate is actually putting forward much in the way -- you say an optimistic agenda. i'd also say a positive agenda and have two candidates who are painly counterpunching and they're refraining from putting forward ideas lest they be attacked. this is a very defensive campaign. so you don't say what tax expenditures you'd get rid of. you don't exactly say how you would curtail entitlements. everybody's playing defensive. but what this shows, but not playing offense, you're still on the defensive. b
for the united states senate, this guy, todd akin, with his views? >> it was a three-way primary, and the far right, very evangelical, religious base of the republican party, the mike huckabee, rick santorum wing of the republican party coalesced behind todd akin in the primary and in a three-way primary, that was enough. >> earlier this week akin is back in shape here i guess in terms of the establishment. he had this to say about your debating style. take a look. >> the first two minutes it was like somebody let a wildcat loose and so we went at it for about an hour. >> he said he was surprised about how you attacked from every different direction. you know, as if it was a debate or something. he said you weren't very ladylike. let's check that thought from him. >> she was very aggressive in the debate, which was quite different than the way she was when she ran against jim talent. she had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike in the debate we had friday. she came out swinging, and i think that's because she was threatened. >> well, today akin denied his use of the word ladyl
of the united states. >> there are chinks in his armor, by the way. he didn't count on the knight from arkansas showing up either, bill clinton. >> sir lancelot. >> sir lancelot showed up in the fields and he's not the guy to go jousting with. thank you, to complete the last reference to that metaphor. >>> coming up, more right wing vitriol. newt gingrich said president obama isn't a real president, he said that last night, he says he's a false president. when will this right wing effort stop to stop the legitimacy of this president? we'll talk about the relentless campaign. >>> also, the lead president obama enjoys in the polls may be helping democrats on other job races like senate. tonight we'll talk to one senate candidate whose fortunes are on the rise, wisconsin's tammy baldwin. mitt romney isn't succeeding as a solo act so the romney campaign is putting mitt romney and paul ryan on the campaign trail together, sort of a karaoke duet, i guess. what does it tell you the big draw on the republican ticket is the number two guy? let me finish tonight with how the democratic party has a huge o
for president of the united states, for god's sake. what are you going to do? >> david gregory, they just went round and round and round. and it was like jell-o. he could not get mitt romney to stand still on anything except to promise tax cuts without in any way specifying how they were going to get paid for it. >> yeah. exactly. i'm not going to raise taxes on the american people. >> are we being too tough on these two guys, or were they really, really general in your eyes, too? >> they continue to amaze me, both the principles romney and ryan and their staff, they come to these shows with no news to me. and so the news they're going to make is news that's negative from their point of view. i thought, you know, they know what questions they're going to get. one thing we haven't discussed yet about romney is his answer about why he didn't mention the troops in his speech at the convention. he got asked about it and gave a very weak answer. >> he was also asked -- >> he was asked again and gave an even weaker answer. >> somebody who is really facing this unemployment crisis head on. and again,
slack. >> at least for 24 to 48 hours until you have a dead united states ambassador come back home. i think that was the unbecoming thing. >> but the egypt mistake is an interesting mistake and i think deserves some scrutiny. >> it was an interesting mistake. i think we can get past it. i think it is very good news that the president spoke with president morsi and let him know, this is not acceptable. this is not how you guys behave. and john, from all the report s i've read, the egyptians said message received. the muslim brotherhood, even, said message received. we're going to pull back. why is this important? this is so important for so many reasons in the middle east. the least of which not being israel and trying to keep -- trying to keep israel safe. >> well, you think about it, you know, the historic u.s. allies in that region, all of those relationships are somewhat more tenuous and trfragile than just few years ago, whether it saudi arabia. you want to have that relationship be strong. i think the president was speaking the truth which is that it's a government in transition.
of the united states of america, and to the republic, for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. [ applause ] >> boy, she just looked great, didn't she? >> she did. you can imagine, the amount of therapy and hard work. >> oh. >> that she's had to endure to climb back from being -- she was literally shot in the head. >> in the head at close range. >> close blank range. that was a pretty pivotal time in the nation's conversation about where we stand and the tone of things. >> it was. >> what a symbol of hope she is. that was incredible. >> it was a very moving moment. >>> all right. coming up he nominated his dad, last night for another term as vice president, bo biden, the attorney general of delaware, joins us ahead here on "morning joe." former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, nbc news political director chuck todd and later maryland governor martin o'malley. up next mike allen is here with the politico playbook. but first, bill karins with a check on the weekend forecast. >> good morning to you, mika. let me help get everyone out the door thi
? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
, these videos, just fills me with pride. and because i know how much he loved being a united states senator and how much he loved the democratic party. >> congressman, quickly, handicap joe's chances today? what's going on? >> we need people to turn out and vote. nothing is taken for granted. joe is working hard, great grassroots campaign and so we're just going to keep pushing as someone who is on the ballot myself for many years, you never take anything for granted. joe's got a terrific organization on the ground, which is where it matters the most. >> i want to talk about that '49 senate race. -- '94 senate race. you would hear these stories your dad was sometimes as worried about your race as he was about mitt romney. talk about some of the stories. here he was in the fierce closest race of his political career and he's worried about your race. >> the paradigm of the mitt romney/t kennedy race of '94 is replaying itself in this campaign. mitt romney was on every side of every issue? '94 and once again he is playing the flip flop game again. so all you really need to do is replay those d
plan in the united states today. i don't know what to say. i'm speechless. >> he clearly did know what he was talking about on morning joe there and he worked enough on the issue in massachusetts to know what he was talking about. and that appearance on "morning joe" was at the beginning of this presidential campaign. he knows then that he's going to be running for president. so he's giving a campaign answer then which he can no longer give, apparently. but as the governor just mentioned, one of the things that you can get at the emergency room is a very, very big bill that can put you into bankruptcy, isn't it? >> the emergency room is a great place to get patched up, if you have a true emergency, a heart attack, but it takes only a few hours in the emergency room to run up a bill not just in the thousands of dollars. there are very few people who can pay that. the bills get very expensive, people can't pay it and the cost gets passed on to the rest of us in the form of higher taxes or insurance premiums. nobody knows that well, governor romney who used to make that argument all the t
introducing you to the president of the united states, that's a pretty remarkable message. >> that is. >> that speaks to the american dream and i will say, perhaps, his greatest asset is his little 3-year-old daughter was a super star on the cutaways and become an internet celebrity flipping her hair around. it was draets. >> we're just getting started live from the blackfinn salon in charlotte, north carolina. >> mika does that too. when she's at baseball games and they catch her behind home plate. >> remember when we embarrassed chris. absolutely funny. >> the mayor is going to be here. >> mayor julian castro will be here joining us and bring in white house senior adviser valerie jarrett here to join us. >> all right. >> yes. >> tom brokaw, arianna huffington. up next, jim vandehei with the top stories from the politico playbook. but first, let's send it up to bill karins in new york for a check on the forecast, bill? >> good morning to you, mika. it's a very humid morning for everyone in the eastern half of the country. there's some fog to deal with too. and definitely some rain, e
of the united states. >> i heightened it up. >> if you listen to what he said in florida from that fund-raiser thing, he continually refers to "those people." "those people." that ain't going to fly. >> yeah. >> "those people." >> that was bad. >> like some alien tribe among us who are just lunging for food stamps. nobody wants to be born poor in the united states of america. >> yeah. >> there's a way to do it, but -- >> i can tell you my dad also, again, unemployed for 18 months. i'll guarantee you he didn't like going to the mississippi unemployment office to get a check to keep gas in the car. >> you think people like going to food pantries? >> no. it was humiliating. he did it because he had to do it. but, again, though, i think, though, there is -- i think this is a line of demarcation. and i think it's a good opportunity. i told a good friend of ours in the romney campaign, i said, the tape's not your problem. the libyan press conference, you lost more independent voters with that stupidity than that tape. you could actually use the tape as a positive. >> let's get to massachusett
think there's a real problem with that guy being president of the united states. just in terms of the persona he presents. he's not really human. your thought? >> well, he's pulled out the reagan playbook. but it's just not working 30 years later the way it did 30 years ago. he wants to add things back in without explaining. he wants 100,000 troops without explaining what they'll do. >> reagan -- give him credit here which i often do. he understood the importance of getting the salute right. to recognize he was commander in chief and he was connecting with the people fighting. >> that's right. but the difference is romney has talking points on a briefing book, but you saw last night the president has really connected with the military people. and in talking about veterans and jobs, the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this international and domestic divide in ways -- >> i think you're right. the idea of the first lady and dr. biden, the second lady if you will, making a point of almost like in a civil war setting. that women taking an interest in mostly guys
nominee for president of the united states shared his deepest beliefs about the two kinds of people in this country, those who give, like him, and those who take and loaf and vote for obama. joining me now is david corn with mother jones the author of "showdown," out in paper back, and "new york times" jonathan heilemann. we have new tape to show you from that fund-raiser including what he said about the israeli/palestinian conflict. before we get to that, here is that shocking tape from romney talking about the 47% of americans who he says are definitely not voting for -- are definitely voting for obama, not for him. he was answering a question from a donor apparently. the tape was first posted by the great mother jones magazine. let's watch. >> 47% of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. all right. there are 47% who are with him who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they're entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it. that that's
to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than he paid. purely for show he deliberately inflated his tax rate on purpose. on mad o owe blog today it was said mr. romney was in the preferred selection of selecting his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pay. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. but mitt romney is a special kind of millionaire. he doesn't pay 25%. he only pays 14.1%. how do you get 10 points below the rate that even the other millionaires are paying? you get that by trying, by working really hard by avoiding taxes. as the wa
birth question, was the president born in the united states. under our constitution he has to be born here to be president. ohio republican primary voters, 37% they do not think barack obama was born here. just 2 in 5 say the president was american born and, therefore, a legitimate president. when you ask the president's religion, this gets scary. a majority of all voters don't take him at his word. just 49%. this is all voters, say he's a christian, which is what he says he is. and 30% of republicans and 34% of conservative republicans say obama is a muslim. simple as that. here is the point. these bad numbers, saying twice wrong, these 34%, twice what they were four years ago. when he came in people took him at face value. i'm american born, obviously. i got a whole history, it was announced when i was born in honolulu, in all the papers there, and i am what i am, a christian. i go to this church that caused him a lot of trouble. do we remember that? he went to a church, jeremiah wright's church that got him in all the trouble. why did we change from that to this -- they're all beco
. >> all 188 votes for the president and the next president of the united states, barack obama. >> in a surprise appearance, president obama joined clinton on stage. the president speaks tonight. vice president biden did a late night walk through while breakdown continues at bank of america stadium. his speech and all today's events moved inside amid the threat of severe weather dampening the democrats' final day. we're still waiting to see what changes may happen here as a result of all of that, trying to now accommodate as many as they possibly can. thousands more people than this arena can hold. lynn? >> thank you. >>> last night on msnbc's special convention coverage, the keynote speaker, the mayor of san antonio, texas, addressed republican charges that the president hasn't done enough to fix the economy, particularly l job creation. >> when you look at where this nation was whether barack obama took office losing 800,000 jobs, n. january of 2009 and he went to work right away so that now you have 29 straight months of private sector job growth, 4.5 million new jobs create
united states must be outrage. >> the administration sent mixed signals to those who attacked our embassy in egypt and mixed signals to the world. >> reporter: the world waits to see who will be held responsible for the death of a diplomat. >> reporter: even some republicans criticized romney for jumping in while events were still unfolding. mara. >> right now there are reports of protestsers storming the u.s. embassy in the yemeni capital. once inside the compound, the mob brought down the u.s. flag and burned it. witnesses say security forces have opened fire on the crowd. >>> well, when it comes to what many see as mitt romney's missteps in the aftermath of the attack, last night on "politics nation," they spoke about what romney needs to do in response. >> before you make statements, get your facts straight. at night with the crush of other events going and i'm sure people running in and out telling this is happening, that's happening, let's get a statement out, they did it wrong. they didn't get their facts straight. he should take it back and he should express condolence to the dipl
, a remarkable suspension of joint operations between the united states and our supposed partners in afghanist afghanistan. what does the breakdown in that relationship mean for the future in the
by the year. rick scott, i would dare say, is perhaps the most conservative governor in the united states. florida, i understand it's a swing state in presidential election, but it's a swing state when you have, you know, guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy who looked like ryan pushing granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big debate that he had with charlie crist and the democratic opponent, he talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possibly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. the voters there are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite presi
barry goldwater was saying at the time, i'd like to cut off the eastern end of the united states, not 47%, but a big chunk of it. here is what barry goldwater said which is similar to what romney said, let's get rid of the part of the country we don't like. >> in a saturday evening post article dated august 31st, 1963, barry goldwater said, sometimes i think this country would be better off if we could just saw off the eastern seaboard and let it float out to sea. can a man who makes statements like this be expected to serve all the people justly and fairly? >> well, looks like governor romney would like to saw off 47% of the country. john hilman, don't you like the voice of that old tv commercial? that's authoritative. >> totally awesome. look, i think that, you know, it's hard for us to criticize governor romney. last week we were saying, you know, it's terrible this thing he said, earlier this week, it's terrible this thing he said, you need to be the president of all americans. for him to try to right that ship and apologize, although he didn't come out and own it in quite the way i
to walk before a camera and say, i want to be a united states senator? >> well, first of all, i love the idea that he has a democratic woman in his campaign photo there, because, of course, democrats are the one most enthusiastic about him remaining in the race. because he's the one likeliest to hand the seat right back to them. you know, this is maybe the luckiest man alive, because he had this horrible scandal, looked like he was going down, then the conventions came. and now mitt romney's in trouble. that's the bigger distraction for the republicans than what's happening in missouri. all eyes are off him. the democrats are laying low. they don't want to bring this thing up again, until they hit the 25th, when he has to stay on the ballot. then all kinds of hell is going to be unleashed on him. >> shirra, just to remind everybody, this is the guy who speaks in a way that's so condescending toward women, that even he seems to be suggesting a woman who has to go through the hell of reporting not only going through a rape, which has within in the past a capital crime, but then has to
and defeat her. how many people in the congress of the united states do you think are anti-american? you've already suspected barack obama. is he alone? are there others? how many do you suspect of your colleagues as being anti-american? >> what i would say, what i would say is that the news media should do a penetrating expose and take a look. i wish they would. i wish the american media would take a great look at the views of the people in congress and find out, are they pro-america or anti-america? i think people would be -- would love to see an expose like that. >> well, mr. graves, i hate to admit, i shirked on that response but have not conducted a joe mccarthy-style probe in my small role here of the loyalty of the democratic members of congress. what do you make of having an opponent like that? what would you make hay out of that crazy comment? >> krirchris, i'll tell you, it started on your channel and show, she keeps going. she keeps going. she'ses actually coming after me. she likes to tread on fear and separation. that's her whole mantra. and i think it's getting old. >> okay
